Five Places with Fireplaces
There’s nothing better than enjoying a meal next to a cosy fireplace on a chilly winter’s day. As the weather gets cooler in W.A, many people tend to retreat to the comfort of their own homes, but that doesn’t need to be the case! There are plenty of places in Perth that have adapted to the cooler weather, and you don’t need to sacrifice your heater or fireplace either! Fireplaces in Perth can be a little difficult to track down though, so we’ve put together a list of the 5 best places with fireplaces in Perth.
1. Alfred’s Kitchen, Guildford
Open 7 days a week until early hours of the morning, Alfred’s Kitchen has gained a reputation for their hearty burgers and social atmosphere.

With over 40 flavours to choose from and almost 70 years of experience, you’re guaranteed a warm night and a great feed at Alfred’s Kitchen.
2. The Queens, Highgate
For those not wanting to sacrifice an al fresco dining experience at the sake of keeping warm, The Queens Bar and Restaurant is the place to go.
